The Herald News: Guns from city streets made into garden tools at UMass Dartmouth event

Surrendered guns got a new, more peaceful purpose at an event at University of Massachusetts Dartmouth on Wednesday that took inspiration from a Bible verse.

“It’s a change for an instrument with the potential for tremendous harm to an instrument of nurturing,” said Bishop James Curry, retired bishop suffragan of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut.
